Today I am going to show you an art journal page using StencilGirl stencils and Colour Artist Ink.
To see the process video go here.
So, lets begin …
I started by randomly stamping over the page with a permanent ink. It needs to be permanent since there are more layers to go on top of it and I don’t want it smudging black everywhere.
I ripped some music paper and glued it down to form a loose interpretation of trees. Black and White Heavy Gesso was used to add tonal values to the shadows of the “tree trunks”.
I wet the page with water. While wet I added Colour Artist Ink (Citrus, Cranberry & Cider) one at a time with a paint brush and blended the edges together.
A little of the White Heavy Gesso was added to the middle of the centre of the circle to make it lighter.
I wanted some Colour Paste that was lighter than the Sunshine so I mixed the Sunshine Colour Paste with the White Heavy Gesso for a pale yellow colour.
This pale yellow colour was scraped through a StencilGirl stencil with a palette knife randomly over the page.
That brings us to the end of the art journal page.
I hope you enjoyed it.
I would love to see you recreate this page.
Until next time
